As part of my post-Creative With Money Playdate Assignments (fyi I am working on a kit version of the Playdate!) I have a monthly meeting with money.? Not like, spreadsheets and budgets, I look at the financial stuff in my business all the time. ?These meetings are different, this is where I meet with money, soul to soul.
Right now the Soul of Money appears to me as a peacock that lays golden eggs.
The backstory: It started out as a dam that first just confused me and then allowed me to profit from flow, and has since morphed into a few other stories and has been the peacock since last fall.? As I did my best to do what the peacock was asking me to to, in the winter it started laying golden eggs to show me possibility but I didn’t have a way to turn the eggs into anything useful.
When I tried to pick up the golden eggs, the gold peeled off and turned to dust.? Abundance was right there but I couldn’t pick it up.? But I kept working with the peacock and then this amazing golden art deco carriage showed up right behind the peacock that turned the eggs into coins.
And now, this month, there is a lot more gold sparkling in the air than last month, like the peacock has this permanent gold glitter backdrop.
But the peacock looks tired, and a little annoyed.
And so we begin (peacock’s words are in italic):
Honey, you’re not picking up all the coins!
What? I’m supposed to pick them all up?? How?
[We both sit in silence. I’m imagining running around exhausting myself trying to pick up the coins. The peacock is looking at all the coins strewn about on the ground and feeling sad about them going to waste.]
The carriage needs an accessory that gathers and holds the coins.
No, that’s your job.? Seriously!? I am laying the freaking golden eggs plus got this amazing cart that turns them into coins!? All you have to do is pick them up!? You won’t even gather the gold coins I have brought to you?
It’s not that I won’t.? I just don’t know how. Or… I guess I didn’t know that I was supposed to.
Honey, you have to receive me.
I thought I already did.
Well, you do.? But more is coming your way so you have to beef up your receiving.
You know how.? Those thoughts in your head right now… act on them.
OK, I can do that.
Remember: Don’t worry about how to do it, just do it.? The how will work itself out like it always does as long as you do what feels right and don’t do what feels wrong and LOTS of creative journaling BEFORE acting.
I should go buy some new art supplies.
YES! Get that stuff you need that makes creative journaling more fun.? Also: drink lots of tea, listen to music and fill the fridge with delicious and nourishing things.? Create the perfect container to bring all of this to life.? Picking up the coins is not the chore you’ve been making it out to be!? It’s a party, sweetie.
I see that now.? OK! I want to go shopping and then get journaling.? Thank you for this.
Clear Direction!? What a gift.
And I started to paint….
And it turned into a money compass.? Excited to see where it goes.
